Maybe the defrost heater or terminator has failed and iced up the evaporator.

Ge profile bottom freezer model # PGSS5NFXA SS. Got up this morning and freezer thawing both fridge and freezer same


Not sure if the compressor is running. If not, you'll need a repair man. Since fans are running, most likely the thermistor. Also, if you haven't unplug from the wall, wait 10 seconds then plug back in; this may reset the control board. The link below may help. GE Refrigerator Not Cold Enough

Ge bottom freezer not freezing


Check to see that the evaporator is not covered with layer of ice. The latter serves as an insulator and prevents freezer temps from going down to about zero degrees. If the defrost heater/timer is defective that will certainly be a cause. Since the freezer air is not cold enough to freeze, then the refrigerator temps are also high. Using a digital thermometer will confirm this.

Leaking door gaskets can also be responsible for higher internal temps

I have a GE Adora M# DSF25KGTABG. Set temps on the freezer door to 0 and 37. runs great for a few days then drops down to -9. I have replaced all thermistors and the mother board. What would be the next...


I have the GE Adora DSS25KSTB ss and the temps will not hold to cool temp.
We set it at 0-25 and the refg to 35 and sometimes it will cool to that temp and then sometimes it is a lot warmer.

May freezer temp 20F, and refrigerator's temp 47


Im guessing you have a maytag refrigerator. If this is a side by side model, one of the more common problems that cause the fridge side temps to increase, followed by a freezer temp increase, is likely due to a faulty adaptive defrost control failing to switch the unit into the defrost cycle. There are other possible reasons, but with your limited info, cant be sure

Water was frozen all inside the freezer and fridge temp was high


Self defrost mechanism may have an issue. If it stays on too long you will have excessive temps build up in refrig as well as freezer. There is also a defrost thermostat that is supposed to turn compressor back on when temps get too high - check that out also.

GE Fridge: PSS26SGPA SS Model


CallMe-

Your "freezer" and "refridgerator" temps are not jumping back to 14 and 44 respectively. When you change temps, they both wait 3-5 seconds before they revert back to a temp reading, not a temp setting.

Does your "freezer" make any loud or thumping noises? If not, do you hear a quiet whisper when both compartment doors are closed?

Solutions could be :
1. Servicing the coolant (might have a small leak)
2. Checking the seal on your freezer compartment (black rubber that meets the metal frame)
3. Your internal cooling fan is not operating and needs replacing (but I think your temps would be significantly higher).

Best of luck.
